    I was originally looking to purchase a Clevo laptop (p870), but after talking with Donald at HIDEvolution, he has me really interested in the upcoming GT76.

    I thought I would reach out to MSI owners and see what their feelings are on this laptop as well as the reliability/performance of their MSI laptops. My experience with MSI has always been desktop component related, and the reliability/performance has been really hit or miss.

    Any input would be appreciated!

    EDIT: Just realized I posted this in the wrong forum. Mod, please move this to owner's lounge.

    I dont think there is an owners lounge since no one has it yet, it was just newly announced to the best of my knowledge.

    Won't see one in the wild for a while, but if any of the hype plays out at all it's probably going to be the best of the 9th gen desktop replacements.

    So I initially chose a Clevo and Donald at HIDEvolution ending up selling me on this one (which was actually cheaper than my specced out Clevo). The process has been fantastic so far, so if anyone is like me and lurking from the interwebs looking for a high-end mobile computer, HIDEvolution has thus far been pretty awesome. I'm a software guy, so I only research hardware when I'm looking to purchase a new computer and Donald was very patient with a lot of my (surely) stupid questions.

    Pretty hyped for the machine, as this will be the highest end machine I've ever owned!

    As early as July 10th. As configured, it is running me ~$5k between HIDEvolution, Amazon, and Newegg.

    Hey man I'm thinking of getting this as well for my first high end laptop (my other possible choice is Acer predatory helios 700, but both seem the best when it comes to laptop power and thermals)
    Just wondering why did you get Samsung for the 1st SSD slot and ADATA for the 2nd slot?

    Looking forward to your impressions on this beast!

    The reviews I've read place the Adata as slower than the Samsung. However, I'm going to get the Adata first and run some benchmarks against that drive and see what speeds I get in the laptop. If it performs pretty close, I'm going to save a $100 and just get another Adata. That Acer looks pretty slick, but if this MSI lives up to even half of the hype, I think I'm going to be pretty happy with it. I just hope I don't get screwed like I usually do with pre-orders. :mad:

    When I finally get the laptop, I'm going to benchmark the stock speeds, check out the overclock and benchmark that. I'll post the results here when I have them, so I can be your guinea pig if you don't mind waiting.
